Germany reaches Kyoto commitments

In a recent study Germany disclosed that it reached it Kyoto protocol goals this year. in 1997 it was agreed to lower CO2 emissions below the level of 1990 by the year 2012. Germany has met this goal 4 year ahead of schedule.

This covers emissions from private households, transportation, energy production and other areas. It shows that it can be done without economic impact. Hopefully the USA joins the planned follow-up agreement....
